Our board member, co-founder, volunteer, and foster, Bobbie Timmons, will be running the Columbus Marathon on Sunday, October 21, 2012. Bobbie has run two half marathons of 13.1 miles, but never the full 26.2 marathon. This will be her first endeavor at a full marathon and she has been practicing for months now to get ready. On Sunday, August 26, she ran the Emerald City Half Marathon in just about 2 hours and 45 minutes. That means, she will be running for around 5-6 hours for the full marathon! Impressive!
Bobbie decided to become a marathon runner to raise money for the kitties of Black and Orange. She will be running in a specially made B and O shirt and ball cap with our logo embroidered on both. You can clearly see her coming in her black and orange outfit.
Bobbie is asking all of you to please donate either $0.50, $1, or $2 for every mile she is going to run ($13, $26, or $52 total). Her goal is to raise as much money as possible to help spay and neuter even more kitties in need. We can spay a female cat for around $50 and neuter a male cat for $32. If you donate $0.50 or $1 per mile, we’ll apply those amounts, $13 or $26, toward a cat neuter. If you donate $2 per mile ($52), we’ll spay one female cat. Let’s see how many cats we can spay and neuter using Bobbie’s very capable legs!
Thank you to John Hedgecock of Needle This Embroidery for making the shirts and hats for us with B and O’s logo embroidered so nicely across them. They turned out great! If you need something embroidered, contact John at email@example.com or 614-879-5990.
